Recently, Experience L!fe posted an article that pulls together and explains some of the past “competing” theories about saturated fats (Good? Bad? Needed? Avoid?). I like how this piece provides some insight as to considering the theories together, based on current science.
One point I took away from the article was this: Theories about the health value of saturated fat are converging to at least one general point of agreement–that consumption of several servings of fruits and vegetables each day is good. Further, if you are removing things from your diet that the collective knowledge says are probably bad for you, replacing them with good old fruits and veggies is positive.
Want to know how it all comes together? Take a look at the article (and the sidebars they have provided too): “A Big Fat Mistake”
